At Kitchenality, we are thrilled to unveil our latest addition to the showroom at Arighi Bianchi’s in Macclesfield – a stunning new kitchen installation that perfectly encapsulates the beauty of bespoke traditional design. Our featured kitchen provider, the esteemed English brand ‘Alku,’ specializes in crafting bespoke traditional kitchens that combine classic charm with modern functionality. This new display showcases two distinct ranges, both adorned with a timeless ‘charcoal grey’ base unit color, allowing customers to experience the rich variety of styles available.
Elegance in Every Detail: Skinny Shaker Range
One of the highlights of our new display is the captivating ‘Skinny Shaker’ range, a door design that exudes sophistication and craftsmanship. Crafted from premium ‘solid wood’ ash, these doors are meticulously painted to perfection, showcasing the quality and care that Alku is renowned for. The ‘mock in-frame’ moulding detail adds depth and character, capturing the essence of traditional aesthetics.
To enhance the charm, the Skinny Shaker doors feature framed ‘tongue & groove’ end panels, beautifully finished with a traditional cornice. This intricate detailing pays homage to classic kitchen design, infusing the space with an air of timeless elegance. It’s a range that speaks to those who appreciate the finer things in life.
A Modern Twist: Shaker with V-Groove and Carini Walnut Accents
Complementing the Skinny Shaker range is the remarkable Shaker with V-Groove design, which graces the peninsula area of our display. This range seamlessly combines modern sensibilities with classic elements. The inclusion of open shelves on one side, complete with factory-finished inset spotlights within the ‘Carini Walnut Style’ carcase, adds a touch of contemporary flair to the overall design.
To create a cohesive and visually pleasing look, we’ve selected knurled antique brass bar and T handles. These details not only work harmoniously with the charcoal grey base units but also beautifully complement the light grey tones of the tall and display units. The result is a kitchen that effortlessly blends old-world charm with contemporary allure.
Bringing Light and Functionality: Thoughtful Design Choices
A well-designed kitchen is not just about aesthetics; it’s about functionality too. That’s why our new display features several elements that prioritize both form and function. The display units are equipped with vertical strip lights and glass shelves, providing ample illumination and creating a captivating visual display for cherished kitchen items.
For the drawers, we offer a range of options to cater to diverse preferences. The standard Hettich AvanTech drawer in Anthracite color exemplifies modern functionality, while the glass-sided panel drawer adds a touch of sophistication under the ovens. To pay homage to classic craftsmanship, we proudly showcase the ‘dovetail solid oak’ drawers, a nod to time-honored woodworking techniques.
Excellence in Appliances and Surfaces
Our commitment to providing top-notch quality extends to every aspect of the kitchen, including the appliances and worktops. The ovens featured in our display are the latest ‘Studioline’ models from Siemens, offering not only cutting-edge technology but also a 5-year warranty for peace of mind.
Completing the picture are the stunning worktops, crafted from a popular quartz material. With a ‘Carrara Marble’ aesthetic and a delicate golden tint running through it, these worktops effortlessly complement the trending colors and finishes of today’s kitchens.
